Inglourious Basterds writer-director Quentin Tarantino and his friend and star of the film, Eli Roth, share their thoughts on writing scripts, making the ultimate “Jews-kicking-Nazi-ass” film, why he hired Roth, and watching the premiere at the Cannes Film Festival.

Best of all, Tarantino and Roth were both in agreement that Inglourious Basterds is definitely a date movie:

“If you’re a nerdy, little Jewish guy, and you’ve got that platonic, pretty-girl friend that’s not, like, giving it up, but is like your best friend and doesn’t mind you paying for her movies… Alright.. When you take her to see Inglourious Basterds, if you can’t get it done that night, then just.. she’s not your friend. Close the deal,” Tarantino exclaimed.

After you check out the full interview after the jump, make sure you see the film, which opens this Friday.
